Just a warning that production on LTO8 media / cartridges has stopped temporarily. There is a lawsuit between Sony and Fujifilm, and the tapes aren't being made until the lawsuit gets resolved apparently.
If you're currently using LTO8, I would recommend stocking up on cartridges.
I stockpiled all the remaining tapes I could find for my customers, but everyone else may be in a pickle.
